Julian Kirshner is a Chicago-based percussionist primarily working in the context of jazz and improvised music. Percussion studies began at age 10 when Kirshner was selected to be a member of the CSO’s Percussion Scholarship Group. Over the past 10 years, he has studied with Sarah Allen, David Bloom, Dylan Ryan, and Frank Rosaly. Kirshner also organizes the Improvised Music Series at Myopic Books, a weekly showcase of musicians playing uncharted music in a first-time context.

Gerrit Hatcher

Gerrit Hatcher is a saxophonist, improviser, and composer. His own work typically engages with free jazz as a set of experimental practices, and as an idiom with a history unto itself, but he participates in the diverse spectrum experimental and improvised music being made in Chicago today. Hatcher has many active projects including his duo with Kirshner, a composed solo saxophone practice, the improvising trio Devouring the Guilt, and his organ quartet Refunction.
